1967 Aston Martin DB6 For Sale in New York
This 1967 Aston martin DB6 RHD has been under the same ownership for the last 40 years and is an excellent matching numbers car to finish restoring. Silver with black interior and partially restored, the car went into storage 20 years ago and hasn’t been moved since. It left the factory with an extremely rare Borg Warner automatic transmission. Only a handful of automatic DB6s were ever built. It’s absolutely rust free and wears new leather interior. Factory Build Sheet included. A great buy with lots of investment potential.
Aston Martin debuted the DB6 in 1965 to succeed the DB5 which featured improved aerodynamics and improvements. There were a total of 1,788 examples produced between 1965-1970. The Engine is a DOHC straight six 282 bhp @5500 rpm with 280 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. Buyers had an option of a 5 speed ZF manual transmission or a Borg-Warner 3 speed automatic transmission.
The DB6 continued with then high-tech Armstrong Selectaride cockpit-adjustable rear shock absorbers as available on the DB5. Other highlights include adopting front-door quarter windows, an oil-cooler air scoop low on the front valance, quarter-bumpers at each corner, revised tail-lamp clusters; additionally the spoiler affected the overall proportions of the DB6, with an increase in length by approximately two inches.
